Women’s Series | 11/12/2018


Introduction to Art of Feminine Presence … How to get noticed and attract more of what you want for professional and personal success … That’s the topic of the next Women’s Series organized by various local Chambers of Commerce including our own Belgian Chamber.

Women in business often feel pressure to fit in with their male counterparts, feeling pressure to suppress female traits that are an integral part of any businesswomen’s arsenal for success.

Critical for the art of negotiation, team building and leadership, these natural traits and skills in women should be in the forefront of their tools for success.

The speaker, Adele Wang, will teach you how to express your natural feminine traits to get the attention you really want for more successful business and personal relationship.
